  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon slices to cool.
  2. Whisk the butter, flour, and salt into the drippings in the same pan. Stir in the cabbage, and cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until cabbage is tender, about 15 minutes. Crumble the bacon; stir the bacon pieces and sour cream into the cabbage mixture.

very good! I only used half a head of cabbage & kept the other ingredients the same, It turns out more creamy that way! I also carmelized a small chopped onion & added it to the mix. Lastly, I transfered it to a baking dish, topped with panko bread crumbs and baked @350 for about 10 min.

This was really, really good! It's the middle of summer and cabbage is chep but hubby doesn't like coleslaw and corned beef and cabbage doesn't seem right in July so I tried this recipe and between 2 adults, 1 teen and 2 toddlers we polished off the whole big bowl! Now I did add an extra strip of bacon cause c'mon, it's bacon! but aside from that I followed the recipe exactly and sooo good, everyone loved it!



Loved this dish. I live on my own and in the Netherlands where we grow a lot of cabbage. This dish was a great one pot dish with plenty of leftovers to play with. I didnt use bacon but used finely diced ham instead, adding a little oil to replace the loss of bacon fat. Heated some up the next day for lunch and threw in a handfull of leftover rice. Yummy!!
